Zoom Zoom Zoom...

That's the speed I'm travelling the internet at now, thanks to my sweet hubby. He surprised me today with broadband! Woo Hoo! It's so amazing to download a picture and it take like...1 second as compared to before when it took 20 minutes (no kidding!) This could get addicting. LOL!

I can't believe it's almost Friday already. We've been busy preparing for this weekend. We have Zach's graduation dinner and ceremony Saturday and then precious Nolan's 1st birthday is Sunday. It's a party weekend, for sure! Next weekend is the BIG graduation party for Zach with all his friends and family and it's also Connor's 4th "Gotcha Day"! So I guess next weekend will be another party weekend too. Oh my! Lots of pictures to follow.....

Also, if you think of it could you pray for Nolan? He's been running a fever since yesterday. Poor little guy. The Dr. says there is a virus going around and it's only symptom is high fever so no need to bring him in because they wouldn't do anything for it anyway. Zach too could use prayers as he busted his finger pretty bad at work on Wednesday. To say it's a wee bit sore is an understatement. LOL!

And one more thing....Brandi has a heart wrenching post on her blog today, definately puts things into perspective. How about checking it out?

Are You Ready?

As a pastor, I'm often called upon when life "vanishes like a mist." One of the most powerful examples I've seen of this was Stan Gerlach, a successful businessman who was well known in the community. Stan was giving a eulogy at a memorial service when he decided to share the gospel. At the end of his message, Stan told the mourners, "You never know when God is going to take your life. At that moment, there's nothing you can do about it. Are you ready?" Then Stan sat down, fell over and died. His wife and sons tried to resuscitate him, but there was nothing they could do - just as Stan had said a few minutes earlier.
I'll never forget receiving that phone call and heading over to the Gerlach house. John, a son, stepped out of the car weeping. He asked me, "Did you hear the story? Did you hear? I'm so proud of him. My dad died doing what he loved doing most. He was telling people about Jesus."  I was asked to share a word with everyone ga…

The Old Rugged Cross...

Sean and the guys are between jobs right now and so Zachary has been helping me with odd jobs here around the house. It has been a HUGE blessing to me!  Leaves I never finished raking are finally removed, a campfire pit has been built, a shed sorted and organized (Hallelujah!) and best of all, my Old Rugged Cross is erected! Isn't it terrific?! I've been wanting to build one since watching the Fireproof movie. Zack situated it so I can see it when I look out the window over my kitchen sink. :) He outdid himself on it. He really roughed up the wood and even burnt it to give it that ruggedness I love. There are nail marks in it too. As Zachary carried the cross to set it up Kyalynn kept saying, "look, it's Jesus the Christ, yes it is". LOL! The kids love visiting the cross and this morning Connor was excited to tell me that he was praying at the cross and talking with Jesus. So glad.

The Prayer of Sir Francis Drake

I read this a couple months ago on another blog. It moved me and I've had it hanging on my fridge since then. We watched Hotel Rwanda this past weekend and for some reason this prayer kept coming to my mind. I teetered on an emotional roller coaster throughout this movie....anger, sadness, lots of tears, hopelessness, anger again, then hope....1 person can make a huge difference! Our family may not be able to save all the orphans of the world but we can save 1 or 2 or 3. That has made a huge difference in their lives....and ours....especially ours!

Disturb me Lord to see the plight of millions, homeless, starving and fighting for life each day. Disturb me Lord when I complain about my lack when I have NO idea what lack really is! Lord, disturb me, so that I can see past myself and venture forth being Your hands and feet. Help me to dream big dreams only You can bring to pass.
